Noble Financial affirms Evoke Pharma (Nasdaq: EVOK) with a Hold rating following Q2 results issued Monday night.

Analyst Nathan Cali noted the following on Tuesday:

  • Operational costs incrementally lower. August 15th, 2016, reported second quarter financial results; no revenues as expected; SG&A $802,655 slightly lower than our $1.1 million estimate, decreasing full year SG&A expense estimate from $4.4 million to $4.1 million
  • R&D spend lower on trial completion. R&D expenses of $2.1 million, higher than our $1.7 million estimate due to Phase III Gimoti® trial completion; maintain full year R&D estimates of $6.1 million
  • Primary endpoint missed, quarter blemished. Phase III top-line data was inconsistent with prior, statistically significant Phase IIb results; 28 of 41 site locations displayed a week 4 p-value of p=0.006 for the Gimoti® group; however, 13 site locations displayed a week 4 pvalue of p=0.002 for the placebo group (placebo better than Gimoti® group in symptom reduction)
  • Company currently in talks with FDA on how to proceed with future advancements towards potential FDA approval; analysis ongoing of data from Phase III Gimoti trial
